are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims t

they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of the united states has lied to the american people but i think he may be lying to himself. i think this president is so totally one-sided in his view of islam, he is so misinformed. he is so willfully ignorant, if you look at his cairo speech that was filled with factual errors. this is a president who simply can't face reality when it comes to people who wanted to kill us. when i see bear bearians -- barbarians torturing an american ambassador, i found those scenes horrifying and i think every american should be enraged. i don't want the commander in chief apologizing and talking about some stupid movie. america has the right to be a free country. america stands for freedom. we should be standing up around the world telling these people, we're not going to give in to you. we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort takes. we should hunt every one of them down. >> sean: i would really like to know -- what is the president going to do about it? now we are spending $70,000 on an ad in pakistan that shows our secretary of state, our pres
. that is why i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> romney harrially criticized the president for downplaying a bump in the road the terrorist attack in libya that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans two weeks ago. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives and developments we don't want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east. >> romney charged obama administration nighyevly jumping the gun that the insistence that the attack were unplanned. team romney planned for weeks to pick up tempo of the obama attack. the emphasis on alternate policies. >> whether on the auto industry or taxes, whether it's on social issues. what he is saying about my position is not true. >> obama camp launched a new blast today using the surreptitiously obtained of romney dissing those who don't pay income taxes. >> romney attacked 57% of americans who don't pay income tax, including veteran, elderly and disabled. >> asked about the negative misleading ads on "60 minutes" the president did not deny it. >> do we see
country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q
and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practice sparring sessions. romney has listed senator
in mourning as the u.s. diplomatic corps and, indeed, entire nation reels from an attack on the united states consulate in libya with four americans killed, including ambassador christopher stevens. the president visited the state department earlier today signing a book of condolence in honor of ambassador stevens. flags have been ordered at half-staff at white house and all public buildings for five days to honor the deceased. with 55 days until election, violence in libya and cairo has also become a flash point in the presidential campaign. providing a perfect case study in how these candidates respond to crisis. the president spoke in the rose garden this morning, alongside secretary of state hillary clinton. >> as americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because our people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the yat of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see justice is done for this terrible act. make no mistake, justi
: former president of the united states, bill clinton, his speech hasn't been vetted by the obama team. all of the speeches except for clint eastwood. we want to make sure they stay on message. is it another loose cannon and look at what bill clinton said in the last three months, he's disagreed on major policies like extending the bush tax cuts and not having a millionaire's tax. the president wanted that. and he said romney had a stellar business career. i >> brian: he writes long hand on yellow paper. it is not like can i go on long hand. i am writing it out. they have an idea roughly of what he's going together. he's confident yet nervous about the content. >> steve: i read that on cbs and i read that the senior democrats are nervous. bill clinton and barack obama do not like each other and there is a blockbuster report out of the new yorker that has a quotation from 2008,oon arcticle by rina liza, bill said to ted kennedy when he was trying to get kennedy to support clinton. a few years ago he would be carrying our bags, referring to the president of the united states. it is out there
to be the standard security in high risk consuls and embassies that the united states has around the world and that includes no low refile armored vehicles, the vehicles that have the tires that will continue to operate even if they're shot out. and other security measures were not there on the ground. general jack keane commented on the security that was missing here on fox. >> there's been a pattern of attacks all through the summer. so we have a pat he tern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that's a movement that's doing that and that is coordinated. i don't think any film, even 9/11 maybe the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power, there are moderates in power in libya, they want it undermine that government and foreign powers assisting that government are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate. and after we do that assessment and we're putting the proper security in place, rest assured whatever it looks
with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basically broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney mayb
a reason for the president of the united states to lie to the american people? >> kimberly: no, there is not. in this particular situation it was glay grant. flagrant. if their lips are moving, they're lying. shameful behavior and weakened our position overseas internationally. people do not fear and respect the united states now because they know we will not act on it. we will instead do the 2012 apology tour. frankly, the american people are over it. it's outrageous that they lied. repeatedly over and over again. despite direct evidence to the contrary. >> eric: i want to get to you. i know you want to respond to that. andrea, immediately after, we said are they that dumb? do they think we're that dumb? what was it? they're that dumb, we're that dumb? >> andrea: they know the media won't cover them the way they'd cover republican president. but they haven't been forthcoming and they should be when it comes to terror. remember after september 11, rudy giuliani set up every day and told the truth. this tells me one or two things this year. either the president didn't do this jo
tells all about pakistan's spy agency. saying that pakistan's government hates the united states and only pretending to like us to get aid money. i guess we suspected it? >> i think what the doctor has focused on is the inner service intelligence service, isi, the arm of the military that helped arm the mujahedin, that helped create taliban. >> greta: and haqqani network? >> they have funded them for more than 20 years fighting the soviets. it's no surprise. i think isi hates the united states. the issue has been whether the radicals will take over the country and supply of nuclear weapons. >> greta: is the isi part of the rad kalsz? >> absolutely. >> greta: who is securing the nuclear weapons? >> not the isi. but there is no doubt to me that those weapons are incredibly vulnerable. that is why the strategy of the united states is to grit our teeth and talk to what is left of the civilian government and authority and to the military that are not radical and prevent this cancer from taking over. >> greta: thinking why are we giving this money, billions of dollars who people who ha
four years and that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. . >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot, that was president barack obama making his case in charlotte, north carolina for a second term in the white house. with another disappointing jobs report released just hours after his speaking, and unemployment above 8% for the 43rd month in a row, did the president get the job done? joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist den henninger. jason riley, editor james freeman and washington columnist kim strassel. jason, let's start with you. how effective was the president's case for reelection? >> i don't think it was very effective. i thought was a pretty-- a performance last night typical liberal change, shared responsibility, but i think it was more significant for what he didn't talk about, paul. obamacare, not a lot on jobs, not a lot on the stimulus. these are that defined his presidency and not using them to make the case for his reelection. >> paul: he didn't defend some of the core programs in an elabor
offended many people around the world. >> it is in response not to united states policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the american people, it is in response to a video. >> now here we are finally today, more than a week after the benghazi strike. now the director of the national counterterrorism center now says that this was, in fact, an orchestrated terrorist attack. watch this. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack? >> certainly on that particular question i would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist tick attack on our embassy. >> here's what you need to take away from what we just presented and from the breaking news we cited at the top of the show. all of this contradicts what the obama administration has been telling you. this attack was, in fact, planned. it was coordinated and it was, in fact, connected to 9/11. it's time for the administration to tell you, the american people, the truth. i certainly know that the families of these four dead am
of this violence. watch. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. martha: that is one of the ads that is being played there. we'll have more on that ad, all of that coming up a little bit later in the show. gregg: now to the ongoing investigation into the deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in libya and new reports of serious security lapses and misjudgements that may have made this tragedy a whole lot worse than it neated to be and one of the big questions right now, why u.s. officials ordered extra security in cairo but overlooked a possibility of trouble at other diplomatic posts and allowed the u.s. ambassador in libya to be mostly unprotected? the deputy secretary of state remembering ambassador stevens and other americans killed at a memorial service in libya. >> this is a hard moment, for all of us. it is a moment of shared loss, and it is a moment of shared hope and shared responsibility. we have lost four wonderful colleagues. we have lost a brilliant ambassador, full of coura
of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their own lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when i have disdainfully written off half of the nation. that's exactly what mitt romney has done here with this statement behind closed doors. for months on this program, i have asked, will the real mitt romney stand up? we saw the real mitt romney. he did behind closed doors. he doesn't give a damn about those who needs assistance in this country and that we are a society, we are a country of compassion. we want to help people who are downtrodden. we want to help those who were dealt a tough deck of cards, whether it be in the economy, or whether it be health care, as of no fault of their own, or circumstances put on families that are totally out of their control. mitt romney wants to do away with those. he views those people as basically road kill. he's not going to communicate to them and he's n
to adequately consider the risk to the public safety in the united states and mexico. >> reporter: now the report found that attorney general eric holder was not briefed on operation "fast and furious" but he should have. lanny breuer, the chief of the criminal division failed to tell holder, and for that he should face some kind of a performance review. yesterday however, holder admonished but did not fire brewer. deputy attorney general jason weinstein immediately resigned yesterday because the report said he should have known and could have stopped the gun trafficking operation. the report recommends 14 officials do face discipline but yesterday holder cleared two of his inner circle including his chief of staff even though both failed to tell him that the shooting of border agent brian terry was linked to "fast and furious". uma. uma: william, what are some of the main points that have come out this morning? >> reporter: number one the wiretap applications were not read. those are critical. contrary to what the ag testified those applications, even the cover sheets raised red flags
's on a knife edge between the people who helped elect him and the government, the united states who supports him. as soon as obama put a little bit of pressure on him, he realized that he's no longer a member of the muslim brotherhood. he's responsible for an entire nation. that 180 where he immediately began condemning the violence, talking ability, he condemned the movie as well. >> he's not going to endorse the movie. >> well, condemned the violence and call for peace and paeacefu protest. it's what we want to see. >> you are right to a certain extent. i was visiting in egypt. it's fascinating to see that. i think it's like obama in the beginning. i don't want to compare. he's not fully the president of egypt. he's still understanding whether he's the muslim leader or because that's why he was hesitant in talking in the beginning. he didn't step in. the interesting thing, if mubarak was in place, he would have rest and brutally suppressed the mobs. used them in the beginning and showed his power to the u.s. what he did, he opened up a little saying this is freedom of speech. >> right. >>
there in lebanon calling on the crowds to protest, to protest and to go against the united states using this anti-muslim film as an excuse. his words: as long as blood is in the u.s., we will not remain silent. this pakistan, as you noted, trouble. this is what was feared, a lot of trouble. karachi, second day in a row of protests, and in a tough border city near afghanistan also the seven of protests -- scene of protests. back here in tunisia, the embassy here is on a skeleton staff after friday's protest which saw folks ransacking through the embassy compound. also targeted the nearby american school. over 600 kids of international parents usually attend there, including some 100 american children. but administrators saw what was happening in the embassy, they sent the kids home. a short while later the school was ransacked by islamist protesters. here is what the director told me about the government response. take a listen. >> i was surprised that the protesters weren't stopped. i think the new government's trying to find the balance between what they allow and what they don't. >> they let it
as president of the united states. they'd like to hear some specifics. >> well, i can tell them specifically what my policy looks like. i will not raise tacks on middle income folks. i will not lower the share of tacks paid by high-income individuals, and i will make sure that we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions. >> what are we talking about, the mortgage deduction, the charitable deduction? >> the devil is in the details. the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> right. freedom, check. angels, check. throw in the towel, mr. president. this guy is going to obviously win. let's get right to our panel. in los angeles msnbc contributor matt miller. in minneapolis anna marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and in washington msnbc political analyst karen finney. anna, if i might begin with you, in listening to mitt romney's responses this weekend and looking at the diagnosticcle and statistical manual of mental illness he appears to be suffering two forms of delusion, grandiose delusion where the individual has an inflated view of himself and also perscu
including united states. i think there is a strong platform talking about the relationship. >> would you agree it's fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak? and tonight is no different? >> sorry? what? >> i say it's always fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak. and tonight is no different. fun to hear from whether mrs. bush or mrs. obama. it's fun for everybody. >> absolutely. because you get to hear the personal stuff. you get to go inside of the white house and go up to the second floor of the white house where the family lives and learn a little bit more about the family. i think it's great having three daughters they do everything possible to make sure their daughters have a live of their own. so it's a fabulous speech. she hit a home run. we ran up the score on this one. and we still have tomorrow and thursday to go. so it's been a great convention so far. >> congressman, thank you sir. >> thank you very much. >> and coming up utah congressman and republican jason chaffin. why is he here tonight? well, he is hear to tell you next the g.o.p. possibly mad
the world's largest economy in the united states. i would imagine if in three to ten years the financial system were to collapse because of the overprinting of money, i would imagine we would have a lot to do with that as the biggest players in all of this. does that mean that you are pessimistic about the united states' ability to come to grips with its unfunded liabilities and entitlements? is that what's going to cause this, we're not going to fix these? >> i'm very concerned that regardless of who will be in the white house next year, the republicans or the democrats, the fiscal deficit will stay above a trillion dollars as far as the eye can see. and that more money printing is on the way, qe 3, qe 4, so on. but you understand i want to clarify one point, i am bearish about the financial system and i think eventually it will collapse, but if you think it through, what is better to own in a systemic crisis, cash with the banks, treasury bills, or real estate in the u.s., or equities? i think that real estate in the u.s., i'm not talking about west 15 where sandy sold his condo for 8
to win and distance themselves from this guy who is, as i say, plainly not fit to be in the united states senate, given some of his views. but it is possible, as jim vandehei said, it's possible he could win this race. and it's clear that a lot of republicans and the republican establishment now looking at the math are thinking about coming back in. i think the republican senatorial committee is very likely to put money into this race. i think the polls will tighten. as horrific as it will be to many people not just on the left but in the middle of the electorate, i think there's a reasonable chance he could win this race. >> not only do i agree with that, take a look, joe, at what roy blunt did. he is moving up in leadership, and he came out and supported akin yesterday. so that is -- >> the senator from michigan. >> yeah, that's the leading indicator. that tells you that the republican committee is going to go full in, and they see this as their way to regain control, and it's all about regaining control. and i can tell you that some of the very people now supporting him are republicans
to the united states, who had a list of grievances against america and would wrap themselves this victimhood about how america had been so wrong to them, this president has coddled and appeased. >> for insight, i want to bring in jim frederick, international editor for "time" magazine. the cover story is about the anti-american protests. the agents of outrage. also, shira tchtupplet, also joining us. long time aide for senator john mccain, wrote something in real clear politics. saying in part, quote, the rush by republicans including mitt romney, sarah palin and scores of other conservatives to condemn president obama for policies they claim helped precipitate the attacks is as tortured in its reasoning as it is unseemly in its timing. we just heard from rick santorum there, as well. how has the romney campaign responded to the backlash over his comments? >> well, initially they didn't even blink. they held a press conference, they doubled down on the issue, they didn't see anything wrong with it. and in the following day, you saw some of his senior advisers speak out and further emphasize
's exotic, grew up outside of the united states and yes, by the way, he is black. but this is -- this goes beyond that, because it really is -- i just think there's an edge to this one that we haven't seen. >> dana, you were just saying, that given all the attacks during the convention, the republican convention next week, it's not been of any great benefit to mitt romney. today we learn that the romney and ryan campaign are running robo calls and guess what's in the robo call, the president wants to raid medicare for $716 million and he's going to tax wheelchairs and pacemakers. i mean, if it failed during their convention, why do they keep doing this? >> and i expect next they'll come back again with that jamesville gm plant which has been discredited and that whole line about the simpson-bowles that paul ryan trotted out last week. so, you know, that doesn't seem to be working. you know, when you take something like the jamesville case that's flat wrong, that's one thing. gene does make an important case that welfare argument is more pernicious because it seems designed to divide people
most bipartisan in the united states senate. i was recently named by "washingtonian" magazine as least partisan senator. the key is to do it together truly in a bipartisan manner. we drew a line in the sand collectively and in a bipartisan way. we need to sit down in a room in a bipartisan manner. the only way we're going to get this done is to actually work together in a truly bipartisan manner and i'm the only one in this room right now who's going to be doing that. being the second most bipartisan senator right now, i've been doing it since i got there. >> there isn't even an -- that "r" next to my name, it stands for the "r" that's in bipartisan. i'm no republican, pay no attention to the "r." i abbreviate things from the middle. every senate republican, every republican candidate for the united states senate has a problem in his or her race right now. and the problem in all of those senate races for republican candidate is this man. mitt romney. the republican party's current standard bearer. republican senate candidate george allen of virginia in his debate this afternoon was ask
weather only to find out that the united states senate under democrat control will not even bring a budget plan to the senate floor. people should know the republican led house on the other hand, met its obligations, most significantly, it passed a budget to rescue america from debt crisis. >> alabama senator jeff sessions there. we have each side blaming the other. who do you think really gets the blame here? sn>> he's right the republicans accomplished their objectives because their objective is to rob obama of re-election, like that's what they said their objective is, the stated goal. maybe they haven't quite achieved that stated goal but in terms of what they're trying to do, they've gotten closer than the democrats for sure. the democrats have not been able to do anything because the republicans said that's their goal. it's hard to say staying in session any longer would improve things. this is a horrible meal. do you want seconds? there's one way to look at it, no way congress could get more unpopular. they'd have to spread diseases and kick babies to get more unpopular. i'm sure th
